"As we've been telling you and all the TLP the mayor of the Ukrainian port city of mirepoix says that more than 10,000 civilians have died in the Russian siege of his city and the full death toll could be more than twice that number This morning NBC nightly news anchor Lester holt with the latest President zelensky also saying the same thing that perhaps 10,000 or more tens of thousands of term he used may have been killed No one really knows We've seen the aerial pictures of just the shell of a city that's been virtually destroyed But we can tell you that has to be on the minds of a lot of people in the east of Ukraine because there are multiple signs that Russian forces are now pivoting They have a new commander with a ruthless reputation There are signs of an 8 mile long convoy and they may be turning toward the dome mass region to be the next and the sites of the Russian forces Interesting angle here Tell us about what your colleague Tom Costello has learned exclusively about problems with GPS signals in Ukraine Tom has been reporting on the Space Force and what's happening in space with regard to all this And apparently according to a four star general time interviewed the Russians have done some jamming of GPS signals and just around the edges of Ukraine Now that doesn't suggest they've made any offensive or aggressive actions toward the satellites in space but they have apparently locally on the ground jam these signals Keep in mind GPS is U.S. but it's free for everyone's use The U.S. couldn't turn it off If it wanted but it certainly recognizes that they're doing all they can to limit the effectiveness of Ukrainian forces by limiting the amount of GPS data they can get And turning our attention Lester here to the United States again COVID cases rise in some areas One major city even bringing back a mask mandate Yeah Philadelphia say it ain't so We're all watching carefully as these numbers begin to tick up However The White House health officials are basically saying they're not as alarmed as they might otherwise be because we're starting at a better place The number was had come down significantly So they're watching There are pockets pockets of the country where it's rising specifically.

Biden Rejects Military Report Outlining Afghanistan Withdrawal

"In this interview with Lester holt of NBC whom he said was being a wise guy for asking about inflation. Biden said he rejected the findings of the army, saying that the handwriting was on the wall that he was advised that it was going to be chaos, Americans would want to be left behind. He said, quote, no, that's not what I was told. So apparently he's rejecting the army report. Washington Post talked about a military official quoted in the document accused The White House in the State Department of not recognizing the swift advance of the Taliban. Reports to disagreements over how to handle the evacuation and the at risk Afghans. Biden says he's rejecting that report. Apparently he's calling the military officials quoted in the document.

Biden Calls Lester Holt a 'Wise Guy'

"Biden told left to holt the anchor NBC News, nightly news? He's being a wise guy for asking about inflation. And hey, I understand that's your job. To a soft network NBC couldn't be more friendly to a Joe Biden. NBC also is the parent company of MSNBC hawk. The Joe Scarborough show where they dump on Donald Trump and Republicans all the time. And Joe Biden couldn't handle a simple question from this guy about inflation. Is this a game show? Now let's remember that even Jerome Powell, that chair said we should retire this term temporary or transitory. So I think the word transitory has different meanings to different people to many, it carries a time a sense of short lived. We tend to use it to mean that it won't leave a permanent mark in the form of higher inflation. I think it's probably a good time to retire that word and try to explain more clearly what we mean.

NBC News' Peter Alexander Ignores That Justice Clarence Thomas Is Black

"I saw a headline last night how NBC's chief White House correspondent Peter Alexander was talking to Lester holt and headline said Peter Alexander stumbles and claims that Biden will be nominating the first African American justice to the Supreme Court. I thought, wow, that's quite a stumble. So I had barrack Derrick pull the clip. Here it is. Is the president's commitment as a candidate that he would nominate the first African American justice to the Supreme Court. Did you hear a stumble? I didn't hear he didn't stutter. He seemed very clear. The media is grotesque. The crazed libs are lunatics. They don't think clarence Thomas is black. They actually believe he doesn't exist.

"To compare january six to nine eleven is beyond absurd it is it is reprehensible and his byron york points out in his scathing column about george w bush's speech to compare january six to nine. Eleven is a rhetorical trick. If you will that is it's beyond ridiculous. It's it's it's it's awful. There is no comparison. I'll never understand what got him. The heads of those few hundred people on january sixth. I don't know anybody who defends them. In fact the best anybody does in trying to defend them is doing with. John just tried to do and suggest will they didn't even exist. It was a bunch of antique people. It was not. It was not that. I saw the guy to there. Were maybe there were a few people from antiphon. Plm mixed in there. Those were those were a lot of trump supporters.

How could i possibly know. I don't know mr gets very well. I met him couple of times. I don't all right. So i cannot wait in on the story the validity of it. I can tell you. I know why it was leaked to destroy. Matt gets because all you're going to see. Is that big headline. So gets himself. Goes on television which i think was a mistake and puts forth his side of the story. What he should have done was had an attorney with him the he i don't mind him i should say don't mind. It's effective for. Someone accused to give his or her side of the story. But you should have attorney with you. Who can supply data. Okay gets into that should but one of the reporters for the new york times shows up on. Msnbc of course and says this go basically destroying in blowing up the fbi investigation which is in itself. Something you would think would be against on interest. You would think that he would be wanting to work with the fbi and you would think he would want to keep this quiet. That's just so disingenuous woods. She destroyed the fbi investigation that reporter and two others. She broke that story based upon an anonymous tip so now she saying on. Msnbc lester holt.

"But now the news magazine longest tenured correspondent is retiring and he's here with me. We now steve kroft joining me for his retirement day. This is the evening when sixty minutes is paying tribute to you later today. Thank you for joining me my pleasure. My pleasure how is sixty minutes changed over your three decades and and how has television changed over your career. How's everything changed. Every time i look at it now and every industry every walk of wipe this changed <hes> but mostly. I think that sixty minutes is probably changed the least of almost anything in the culture in terms of of <hes>. It's you know some people say it's still a little old fashioned but it's still doing good journalism and still basically siklie following the the blueprint that on hewitt set <hes> you know fifty years ago and still the most watched <hes> i mentioned you're obama interviews certainly in recent years. That's what you've been the best known for <hes>. What do you think it is about that kind of interviewing presidential interviewing that people should learn from our people should take away well. I that's a good the question when i first started doing the interviews with with obama in two thousand eight the there was sort of a canvass for doing presidential interviews that people in followed for years and years and years there was a you're of a certain politeness to it you. The president was treated with respect. <hes> tried not interrupted unless you absolutely had to and now it's kind of evolved to the place with this particular president where almost anything thing goes and when he does sit down with somebody besides this fox friends. Would you like to interview president trump. Have you tried <hes>. I have not tried. I took a pass on that. One and leslie and scott pelley both interviewed him. He's a very hard interview very hard interview because he just goes where he wants to go and takes you know even and it's particularly live but <hes> i think leslie did a pretty good job and exposed. I don't say exposing but letting him <hes> reveal himself in his personality the way he thinks i think lester holt did really a good job with them and other than that most people just can't get a handle on it. It's hard. I mean i i would know how to do it really well. I'd have i'd come up with an idea and strategies but i think you have to really be on your toes and beyond the presidential interviews what stories are most important to you are the kinds of stories that we need to have more of on television news. <hes> i think we ought to have more twelve minutes twelve and a half eh stories. I think that that's the biggest advantage that the show has <hes> and you know we shoot normally thirteen hours of pap- for thirteen minutes of <hes> of a a product and you have a lot to choose from and also if you're doing an interview live. You've got five minutes. Maybe <hes> and we've got an hour to sit down with somebody and we can go and find the best parts and right and go in every direction every direction. We're going to a couple more minutes for us steve. You're leaving at a time of turmoil for the last year. It's sixty minutes. There's been a lot of turmoil allegations against the former executive producer jeff fager. He's stepped down under pressure now this news. CBS news president we all remember the upheaval does that relate to wire leaving now. Not really i mean and i say that my wife thinks i'm crazy when i say that but <hes> it had very little to do with it. I made the decision really about a year ago that this was going to be my last season and i my my staff right about that time. All the dramas turned down and i said unless something really happens to change my mind. This is my last season and nothing happened to change. What's it been like inside. CBS news during this period <hes> well you know it's anytime you have organization that has leadership change wjr and as you pointed out we had at three different levels with <hes> corporate CBS with CBS news with sixty minutes. It creates a lot of uncertainty.

"Dash condo, blah dot com. Tomorrow's topic. Read the new grand jury report from Broward eight before we get started. Karen, they just want to thank everybody who came out to what Naples on Friday to attend not one. But actually, two classes though that we taught and I participated in a third. So you wanna talk about a busy day. It was nuts. The first class was of course, our board certification. Nation class in the morning loaded with eager to learn directors and officers of condos and HOA's, and then we had the pleasure of teaching managers only managers in our legal update class in the afternoon. Great turnout, a lot of fun and this week crazy week lies ahead. Pretty busy on Thursday. We're going to be in Panama City, and that's where hurricane hit, and they're kinda rebuilding up there and signing contracts and working with contractors and insurance companies. So we're going to be doing something a little different. We're also going to be teaching another class called before you sign that please. That's funny. You know, how we started out for the first slide that we put up is words, your lawyer hates to hear. And it's hey, I sign this contract. Can you get me out of it? Right. Yeah. No. I can't oftentimes we cannot. And then of course, we'll teach everybody up there aboard sir class, and we're really looking forward to meeting everybody up. There should be a fun week. You're probably wondering. Well, if everything was flattened, and they don't have a condo or HOA left. Why why? Well, they pay their dues. They certainly do their fighting with insurance companies now fighting with contractors hoping that the money eventually comes in people don't have a place to go. In the meantime, and yet like you mentioned last week. There's still an obligation to continue to pay assessments. Wow. Okay. So this certainly has been an eventful week of new laws or new news and understatement. Incredible. Even though Trump was completely exonerated. They always have to use the caveat. According to him, right? According to Trump he was exonerated. Well, I think according to Bill bar, the attorney general and we'll see about the Muller reported self. I think it's three hundred to five hundred pages. Anyway, the press has now said their focus on the attorney general, right? I it's it's kind of pathetic. But can only issue question. Yeah. You are in journalism a longtime how many years if you actually being a reporter or in journalism one way or another. I hate to admit it, but thirty five years thirty five years of journalism. Oh, dirt journalism degree in journalism to ground. Don't wanna put words in your mouth for somebody who's been in journalism for thirty five years. I'm asking you, really. Where is the integrity gone? We're has the quest for really the truth in a story gone. Because if you look at the last two years things have been completely out of control just wondering if you agree. I do it's interesting because you know, what I was Todd is, you know, you have to have sources you have to have three sources before you go with the story. You can't just say according to our own reporting. Right. If the reporter is asked to reveal their sources, they don't have to and they can go to jail, and that's like a badge of honor. So why would you even need a source if you don't have to reveal who it is who it is right for you can make up your sources you go. Right. Exactly. But what happened in nineteen seventy four with the Watergate. And all of that. When they when the press realized how powerful it was that was it. And that was it. Let me do a radio show for what ten years now. Right. And if nothing else, I certainly feel even a condo law radio show. I certainly feeling obligation to at least be honest with the listeners. Right. If I don't know the answer to question, Colorado, come in many times, I've said, hey, I don't know. Let me research get back to you. Hey, call me in the office. I'm just not gonna make up an answer. And you don't always have to be right, right. Exactly. What you look where we in journalism now for two years the press ferris Russia conspiracy collusion conspiracy, collusion Russia. It was twenty four seven three hundred sixty five days a year, non stop and think about it. They were accusing the president of the United States of working for the Russians. Could there be a worse allegation to make against anybody? Actually. And they were relentless with insults after insults me after mean on social media, especially insinuating that Republicans are already it's sheep because they watched Fox News instead of CNN and. MSNBC and any of the other mainstream media outlets. Well, it turns out really only one TV network was right. All along, right. Only. One network was actually telling you the truth. So who were the real sheep's here who were the real sheets which networks actually deliberately misled the American public was at FOX or was it all the others because in the end, and I'm just curious if you agree the press has really done irreversible permanent damage to itself year. And it's overwhelmingly clear that while a free press, of course, is essential in a democracy. A runaway free, presto who reports with an agenda rather than integrity is dangerous. Very dangerous. You know, the old saying you tell the people ally million times, and they start to believe it. That's exactly what the press tried to accomplish here for two years nonstop that was their goal. Fox News was the only network the only one that rose above it. And as we see already their ratings are soaring while CNN and. MSNBC lost something like one third of their viewership. Following the Miller report five hundred thousand people we have higher ratings and that enough right and needles to say L did an amazing job as well. Fantastic. But believable, and they still won't let it go. They still won't let it. Well. Let me tell you. I just want to emphasize one more point because I watched Lester Holt from NBC interview, James call me this week. And I watched Komi sitting near blaming President Trump believe it or not for destroying the integrity of the FBI. Can you imagine the pot calling the kettle black? And I watched as Lester Holt now one time now one time said to call me. Hey, wait a minute Mr. Comey. Isn't it true that Andrew McCabe leaked information to the media and was fired by the attorney general, isn't it? You were the boss striking page conspired and put together an insurance policy to make sure Trump wouldn't be the duly elected. President of the US isn't a true. The U and others lied on applications for Fiso Lawrence. Karen? He did not ask Komi a single question. Not one question came out of his mouth. He simply led a disgraced James Komi blame the president for the downfall of the FBI on national TV he wasn't challenged for a second. So there's no question in my mind journalism, at least as we used to know it absolutely dead. It doesn't exist anymore. I remember that President Trump is going to now release the FIS warrants. He didn't do it before he said he was going. I hope so. So as an attorney as an attorney, I wanna see what went into those Fiso warrant applications, we only found out about this drug page, text because of the Democrats investigating into Trump, exactly. It's it's just and of course. None of this happens. And then of course, you know, the other big story this week you move onto the Justice Millette story. Remember a few weeks ago? I said on the show I wish there was a way to charge him with a federal crime instead of a state crime. Well, guess what it looks like I'm gonna get my wish what happened in Chicago is even amazing by Chicago standards. Right. We're dead people typically vote, right and determine elections. But just when you thought that Rahm Emanuel had some decency left in him and showed that he was upset with the charges being dropped. He then quickly reminds you that no he doesn't have any redeeming qualities because he goes on to blame Trump for what Jesse sm- elected, can you? If you can believe actually blame Trump for his actions. Well, Barbara Bush from the grave is blaming him for her heart attack, right, right? I'm his words should be. It's all about how he takes it every day, their weapons of mass destruction. Words are just, but let's remind the exit to be ex mayor of Chicago that the city in the United States with the worst toxic environment of a murder after murder after murder that was created by him in his Chicago, Chicago is a toxic environment. But let's do this..

We now have a day and we have a location. Paradise ignites a difficult thing to watch the floor is unpredictable in his own words. Here, maybe I'll have another five years. Maybe I'll be gone before you hear this. People in events that made headlines when world news this week continues. There's a lot coming at you right now, turmoil tweets, an insane amount of chatter. I'm Brad milkey with ABC news and I'm here to throw you a lifeline. It's a new podcast called start here or are experts give you on the ground access to the biggest stories of the day. We're going to give you some context, some clarity among the chaos, twenty minutes every weekday subscribe now on apple podcast or wherever you get your podcast and start here. What did you know about phone calls that Mr Flynn made with the Russian ambassador? What did you mean in your interview? With Lester Holt about Mr.. Komi in Russia. Those are two of the forty nine questions. Robert Muller's special council wants to ask President Trump in a sit down interview according to a document leaked to the media this week, ABC's congressional correspondent MAry, Bruce on what else is in those questions. The list of nearly fifty probing questions. Special counsel, Robert Muller has for President Trump lines of questioning, Muller shared with Trump's own legal team. The list now published by the New York Times and what the president is now calling a disgraceful leak Russian collusion. Give me a break. Trump insists. Molars list has no questions on collusion, but that's not true. The special counsel has questions about Paul Manafort once the president's campaign chairman according to the times, Muller wants to ask Trump what knowledge did he have any outreach by his campaign, including by Paul Manafort to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign. Muller also wants to ask the president win. Did you become aware of the Trump Tower meeting that infamous sit down Don Jr. Jared, Kushner? Manafort in Russians, they were told had dirt on Hillary Clinton much of Muller's list centers on possible obstruction of Justice by the president. The special counsel wants to know what if I were made to reach out to Trump's fired national security adviser, Michael Flynn about seeking immunity or possible? Pardon. And what did Trump mean when he said this about firing his FBI director, James Komi when I decided to just do it. I said to myself, I said, you know, this rusher thing. Thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story N when Trump told Russian diplomats and this Oval Office meeting that firing Komi had taken the pressure off, what did he mean by that? Another question Muller wants answered, what discussions did the president have regarding terminating the special counsel with the release of those questions also came word that the special counsel has warned President Trump's legal team, that if the president refuses an interview, Muller could issue a subpoena ABC news, chief legal analyst. Dan Abrahams says, this raises the stakes, let's say it works its way all the way through the courts. The supreme court then says, sorry, this is a valid subpoena and the president says, well, I don't think so, and I'm not going to show up. That's when you have the real potential crisis. We use this word constitutional crisis all the time. I think that the only real crisis occurs if you have in the end, a real war between two branches of government were one of saying, you can't tell me what to do the president. However, maintaining he's still willing to sit down with Muller despite what his legal team is telling him. I would love to speak. I would love to nobody wants to speak more than me back against my lawyers because most lorries they never picked another.

They know more about what I did in two thousand sixteen than I do, but will the investigators after they're talking about the timing of some things that happened at the campaign and at the convention. I think they're completely focused on collusion. With Russia. According to Caputo, there was a lot of focus on the hack of the DNC by Russian operative known as goussev for and WikiLeaks, which published stolen information. This is his stark assessment on whether Muller's anywhere near done, investigating possible collusion. I'm hoping this end soon, but it sounds to me like they have more dating to do today.

But it was President Trump's newest lawyer, former mayor, Rudy Giuliani who created shockwaves this week when he told FOX's Sean Hannity, that money was not campaign money. Sorry, I'm giving you a fact now that you don't know, it's not campaign money, no campaign finance violation. So they've funneled through law firm. Frontal through over and the president. It.
